Surface area per vertex.

Mindboggle computes surface area for each surface mesh vertex as the area of the Voronoi polygon enclosing the vertex. Left: Lateral view of a left cortical hemisphere colored by surface area per vertex. Right: Close-up of the surface mesh. Mindboggle uses area to normalize other shape values computed within a given region such as a gyrus or sulcus.
